Our topic in Geography at the moment is called ‘Why does it always rain in Greater Manchester’. So far in this topic we have looked at rivers in the UK, we have used data from the internet to compare rainfall in different cities in England and we also have rain catchers set up in our playground so that we can measure the rain fall at Oxford Grove!

Today we have been learning about the water cycle.

What can you remember about the water cycle, year 4?

Safer internet day

This week was Safer Internet Day and we had discussions about the things that make us happy online as well as what can make us unhappy. 4M had some really good ideas and gave each other great advice on what to do if something made you feel uneasy when online.

We watched a video where children shared different scenarios and their reactions to them, the main message from this video was “Be kind and play fair. Share with respect”.

4M, what did you learn from Safer Internet Day this week?
